It’s a wrap! Thoroughly enjoyed #ICOE2021!
In the “International Outlook” session hosted by Henry Jeffrey, Bluespring talked about the pipeline of opportunities for marine energy projects and how niche markets can drive cost reduction as the sector prepares for multi-megawatt projects and to contribute to national targets for CO2-free and predictable electricity.
In the “Standards and Certification” session hosted by Jonathan Colby, we talk about the cost of capital being a barrier to the uptake of commercial projects and how certification can help to increase investor confidence and thus lower the cost of capital.
In ENCORE: Energizing Coastal Regions with Offshore Renewable Energy, we are applying the process of IECRE certification in four user cases with Oceans of Energy, Water2Energy, EEL ENERGY, and Teamwork Technology. Bureau Veritas, Inyanga Marine Projects, University of Ghent, EMEC, DMEC, and MET-support each provide Certification services. Deftiq is capturing all experience in eight E-Learning courses.

Finally, for Tocardo BV, MET-support presented the results of the 2-year research and monitoring project of the world's first tidal stream array in the Provincie Zeeland by Technische Universiteit Delft, Wageningen University & Research, Utrecht University, and Deltares.
